Hell everyone and PLEASE be aware that I'm extremely new at what I'm attempting to do.
Even though I have read several threads on this very topic I still need a little help if one of you have a moment.
The way I understand it is that using to Coaxial S/PDIF Input would allow only 2 external signal sources to enter the VS2480 at a time. This might be all that I need at the moment, but in the future I might like at least 8 input sources at a time ?
QUESTION: If for example I use an 8 channel external preamp (such as one made by Presonnus or Focusrite) that have their own built in A/D converters and an ADAT Optical Output jack, could I this ADAT Optical Out to the VS2480's Optical Input so that I can receive all 8 channels of ? I'm assuming the VS2480 would allow me to receive 8 channels of ADAT all at once ?
NOTE: I have a Roland DIF-AT and the R-BUS Cable and could possibly figure out how to connect all of this, but I was hoping for an easier way to accomplish this, especially since the A/D converters might be a bit better in a newer piece of gear, like what I mentioned earlier, in either the Presonnus or the Focusrite 8 channel pre with A/D Converters built in.
Thanks for helping me, it's folks like you that help inspire folks like me.
Much Peace, Charles
